Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

The biggest problem you will face learning Martial Arts, is never knowing if what you learn is effective or if it is ever going to work when you actually need it.

At Submission Martial Arts you will learn skills that are instantly effective!

We've eliminated almost all the usual rubbish that is associated with Martial Arts Training! You won't learn pointless Katas or ritualised dances, you won't have to spend hours doing push-ups or sit-ups, you won't spend half the class doing warm-ups and you definitely won't have to learn a foreign language!

What you will do is learn skills that will help you feel more confident and in control of your situation!!
We don't take ourselves too seriously, our club is about enjoying the process of learning and living the BJJ lifestyle

What is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu!?
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a Grappling Art. First and foremost It teaches control. What you do with that control is up to you. By training at Submission you learn to use that control to subdue or incapacitate your opponent using BJJ techniques like, Control positions, Arm Locks and Chokes.
But the control can be used for many things, control over the opponent and situation gives you control over the outcome. It could be to just subdue them until help arrives or to subdue them to cuff them or extract them from a venue or area. Or to completely incapacitate them so they are no longer a threat!
